We've been enjoying Fish Fritanga the last 3 times we have been to Cancun. Hiding in the middle of several businesses and downstairs amongst many boats docked at a local marina, Fish Fritanga has the best fish tacos I've ever tasted. We have been there once on this trip and we'll be back one more time before saying adios to... More

It may not be easy to find but once you go down the stairs there is this charming place right on the sand with a great lagoon location and spectacular sunset views. The food compares to any place in the Hotel Zone. Their Ceviche is the best!

And don't pass this place just because of what you see from the street! It is a delight of food and atmosphere!

11 of us went for a casual lunch on a Tuesday. Wasn't busy, but the wait staff certainly seemed irritated with us. We ordered several appetizers and then each had an entree. Their "world famous" appetizer - an empanada-like thing filled with nurse shark - was dry and boring. The sashimi was an odd color and no way was I... More

We came for lunch after reading rave reviews on TA and Google. The restaurant in fact had a nice atmosphere, with tables set near the water. Service was ok, friendly enough. Everything looked very clean, including the restrooms. But when it came to food quality and prices (what I care the most about), the experience was pretty underwhelming. Food: expect... More

Ok food, pretty view. Casual, not too expensive. The restaurant is in back, so when you see the sign out front, you need to find the stairs and head to the back.

Nondescript entry down to marina level reveals a local seafood shack. Service was attentive . Food was good and inexpensive with cold beers. The tacos and pescadillos were great. Filet dishes were good and whole fish was fried extra crispy. I didn't care for the taste of the whole fish , which was a hogfish apparently, but I guess it's... More

Saw this restaurant through dinners and drive in's I believe so wanted to check it out and get away from the expensive hotel restaurants. I would have given it four stars but the fish taco's were so disappointing. Two cold flour tortillas, three strips of seasoned grilled groupers and a few strips of red cabbage. No sauce, no nothing.. puzzling... More
